Former NFL wide receiver Sam Hurd has been arrested in San Antonio after federal officials say he tested positive for marijuana use.

Arrests

TROUBLE WITH THE LAW

The 2013 offseason was a rough one for NFL players and the law. Take a look back at the players arrested before camp ever opened.

Using illegal drugs would violate the terms of Hurd's $100,000 bond that kept him free pending his federal drug conspiracy trial. That trial was to have begun in Dallas on Monday but has been postponed until Oct. 9.

Hurd is a former Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys player. He and others are accused of trying to buy large quantities of marijuana and cocaine to launch a drug-distribution network. The 26-year-old Hurd was arrested last December outside a Chicago-area steakhouse, and he was cut shortly afterward by the Bears.

Hurd has pleaded not guilty. Messages left with his attorneys Thursday weren't returned.
